Update in Attempt Murder Investigation

Posted On Monday April 15, 2019

Region of Peel– Investigators from the 11 Division Criminal Investigation Bureau are seeking assistance with an attempt murder investigation that occurred in Mississauga.

On November 7, 2018, at approximately 8 p.m., emergency services responded to a residence on Bayberry Drive in the City of Mississauga, in regards to an injured person. Upon arrival, a 44-year-old woman was located suffering from life-threatening injuries and was transported to a trauma centre.

It has since been determined that the victim answered the front door of her residence and was met by the suspect who was carrying a large box and posing as a delivery man. After a brief conversation, the suspect shot the victim with an arrow using a crossbow that was concealed inside of the box. The suspect then fled the area.

On November 8, 2018 investigators from the Criminal Investigations Bureau and Forensic Identification Services conducted a search warrant at the residence and collected evidence of the crime, including an arrow that is believed to have caused the injury to the woman as well as surveillance footage which captured images of the suspect and the incident. The arrow used in this incident is designed to hunt large game such as moose and deer and inflict the maximum amount of damage possible.

Investigators believe that this was a premeditated, targeted and isolated attack based on the conversation that occurred between the victim and the suspect.

Investigators have identified a vehicle that they believe may be involved in this incident. The vehicle is a dark coloured pickup truck and arrived in the area of the residence minutes before the attack took place and fled minutes after.
